I was given a seedling of this variable South African species. In the wild it grows in a small variable populations. Some plants
very hairy, and have been described as H.humilis ssp hirsutus. I don't tink mine is hairy enough
and is probably the type subspecies. The leaves vary from 3cm in diameter in the 'Dwarf Form' to 60cm in the 'Giant Form'.
Mine seems to come somewhere in the middle.
